Unlike updates in the past (you can check those out here), Nova only let me take one really good picture of her! It was a real life moment that I don't want to fake by trying to take more another day. She is teething and just wanted to snuggle me so I got my one shot and moved on with our day! She is still cute as ever!

Nova surprises us every day with how advance and intelligent she is. Our pediatrician has told us that in several ways, Nova is ahead of the game! We are so proud to be her parents and lucky to watch her learn. I absolutely love [and am slightly terrified of] her strong personality! She knows what she wants. It's so fun to see her problem-solve and even at times be sneaky to get it!

 Every day I wonder if I do enough to raise a smart, independent and caring girl. I want everything for her, including trials and heartbreaks. I hope for her to experience life the way it is meant to be, through learning and growing. I hope she knows how much we love her and care for her. There is very rarely a moment that goes by that I don't feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude for her sweet spirit. She humbles me in the best ways possible and I am blessed to be her mama!
